"Awkward" fans rejoice; MTV has ordered 20 more episodes of the hit series. That means we can look forward to 10 more hours of Tamera creating new initialisms, Sadie giving more death stares and Jenna's life slowing morphing into one giant Trauma-Rama column.
"Awkward," currently in its second season, follows the life of 16-year-old Jenna Hamilton as her life goes from dull to extremely complicated after she's involved in an accident that looks like an attempted suicide. Season three of the quirky comedy was initially set to air only 12 episodes, but with its popularity booming the network decided to nearly double its episode count.
If "Awkward's" apparel is any indication, the show's fandom crosses normal teen demographic lines. "Awkward" devotees can declare their allegiance for team Matty or team Jake with baseball tees from Delias or show their "Awkward" spirit with black Hot Topic shirts emblazoned with the show's logo.
While "Awkward" didn't pick up any Emmy nods last week it hasn't gone unnoticed by every group with a few trophies (or surfboards) to dole out. Beau Mirchoff, aka Matty, won a Teen Choice Award for his turn as Jenna's super-secret-sort-of-boyfriend, and Ashley Rickards (Jenna) was nominated for a Critics Choice Television Award for actress in a comedy series. More "Awkward" is good news for its loyal audience and critics.
